The B+W 62mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

Kaesemann-type filters feature greater optical efficiency than regular polarizing foils and are more neutral in color. The polarizing foils are cemented between plano-parallel optical glass layers, which are then precision-polished to achieve the most accurate plano-parallel surface. This edge sealing protects the filter layers from humidity and are ideal for use with high-speed telephoto and apochromatic lenses.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

            B+W filters were and are the only filter I use.
            Yes, they are expensive but with proper care they should last for ever.
            I find them to be of the highest quality optically and mechanically. In my photography I go for image quality and B+W has not let me down yet.

                There's really not much to say about this filter -- I've been using B + W filters for years, and they are simply the kind of high-quality filters that I want to use on my lenses. They just get the job done as well as a filter could -- I couldn't recommend them more highly.

                        I have other B+W filters, all very high build quality, and this one is consistent with the company's history of well-crafted products of very high quality. The operation is very smooth, it does not turn in the threads during operation, but is easy to put on and remove.

                          I got this filter to go with my 105mm macro lens to maintain the consistently high quality results I've had with the 77mm version on other lens. The build quality is another factor. When you have great lenses, use the best filters you can get.

                                Comments about B+W 62mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC Filter:

                                I use this on my Tamron 18-270 zoom lens on a Canon T3i. For landscape shots I have always like polarizers to bring out the sky and reduce reflections. This Kaesemann process filter has warmer tones and less of the blue tone that most polarizers add.

                                This one does the job well and I have not noticed any appreciable degredation of the photos even when looking at 200X magnification with the Canon DPP software of images captured raw.

                                I have not had it long enough to see the overall experience with it but I don't anticipate any issues. It is of course a very well made B+W product that we have come to expect from this company.

                                  I use circular polarizers every day for my outdoor shots, even on overcast days, as I like the rich colours one gets when one cuts out the glare. I have just upgraded from my cheaper filters to the B+W ones, and it seems a good choice. I like the robust rings. The quality of the shots seems to be better than the ones with my other polarizer (although I have not compared them side to side).

                                        MRC (Multi-Resistant Coating) by B+W is not only an extraordinarily effective multiple layer coating, it is also harder than glass, so that it protects filters from scratches (for instance when cleaning the filters), and it is also water and dirt repellent, thus facilitating filter maintenance.

                                              This is similar to the B+ W filter I have for my 72mm, with which I've been very happy. This time I paid the extra $10 or so dollars to get the Kaeseman version, as it provides a better seal for extreme weather conditions. Although I don't need that now there may be times when I will be photographing in very hot and humid environments, such as on a boat in the tropics, and thought it was better to have that extra seal than not.
